When working in a warehouse or contained environment, having a flooring solution that will provide a number of benefits is key. Chemical containment managers have a number of scenarios to navigate, and being able to alleviate hazardous situations by using an epoxy flooring assists in more ways than one.
Advantages of Epoxy Floor Coatings
Epoxy floor coatings have been used in industrial buildings for years. They are adaptable to any climate, and require very little maintenance. Additional advantages include:
- Chemically resistant
Epoxy flooring is chemically resistant while maintaining its safety standards and high-gloss finishes.
- Eco-friendly and durable
Concrete flooring is eco-friendly and durable, with the ability to withstand tons of traffic and use. Concrete coatings help reduce the environmental footprint while allowing for faster transport and movement without damage to the floor.
Epoxy floor coatings can be applied in a number of patterns and colors to achieve beautiful designs. They dry into a high-gloss shine, which adds style and uniqueness to the entire area.
- Easy to clean
Epoxy floors are very easy to clean. Dirt and other particles can be swept and mopped away to achieve the same look every day.
When working in a chemical containment facility, spills are likely to occur. Epoxy and concrete flooring instantly creates an impact and slip-resistant barrier, enhancing the safety within the facility.
Epoxy floors are cost-efficient and last for years before they need maintenance or additional applications. This saves time, money and quickly improves the look and efficiency of any facility.
These are just a few reasons why chemical containment managers love to use epoxy flooring in their warehouses and other facilities, as the advantages quickly increase the level of usefulness. Due to their versatility, managers can use different colors to define certain chemical zones. This will also aid employees in knowing where certain chemicals are located or where certain tasks should take place, providing an extra layer of protection for everyone in the facility.
